The Lost Lectures

Jelly: reality and beyond.

In this incredible talk: part demo, part tasting, part confessional, Sam gives us a rare glimpse into the surreal world of Bompas and Parr. With jelly cathedrals, golden pigs heads, edible golf course and of course a glowing river, Sam gives a fluoriscein fuelled insight into some of the incredible properties of some of the foods at the very edges of reality. A rare treat indeed!


Speaker Sam Bompas

Bompas and Parr are jelly architects, also affectionately known as jellymongers, who experiment, develop, produce, and install projects, artworks and exhibitions with food, including – of course – jelly. They design spectacular experiences often on an architectural scale, utilising cutting-edge technology to explore the limits of edible engineering. With projects like Mount Rocky (a chocolate climbing wall) and Edible Crazy Golf (on Selfridges Roof Terrace), as well as exploding wedding cakes (ain’t that every girl’s dream?!), it’s little wonder that they were named ‘one of the 15 people who will define the future of arts in Britain’.
